Prior to working with the City Attorney’s Office, she practiced civil litigation for seven years with a firm specializing in land use and CEQA matters.

She began working for the City of Chula Vista in December 2004, initially in a Deputy City Attorney capacity and, since 2009, as an Assistant City Attorney.

Ms. Maland’s practice includes advising in areas of municipal finance, elections, ethics, conflicts of interest, the Brown Act and the Public Records Act, land use, franchise, and telecommunications and utility matters. She also serves as advisor to the Charter Review Commission.

When asked her primary purpose as the Assistant City Attorney, she says, “To help the City of Chula Vista serve the public in a way that complies with the law and to help City staff identify the best way to accomplish their goals.”

Ms. Maland is proud to have worked with City staff on the EUC/Milennia project and is currently heavily involved with Charter Review Commission’s work on bringing forward a proposed Charter amendment to provide for district elections in the City. Ms. Maland looks forward to assisting the City with more exciting projects in the future as we work to improve City services and communication.
